just wash with washing up liquid some people used  my dad used to show shetlands but the rule was to make them look as they came out the field (with out the scraggy back ends)  so when they get put in a pen bedded down with straw its picking all the little bits out wat does my head in but use hoof oil on the horns and they come up spot on .

Yes we sold them both at the Thainstone rare breeds sale and show. The ram lamb got a first place  :) so that was good, and the other one didn't get placed but was still sold.
